Q2  (second 15 minutes)Whether it’s at a conference or a webinar, which professional development topics are vital for your continuing education? Which topics are yesterday’s news? What isn’t being covered that you’d like to see?

Q3  (third 15 minutes) : Do you feel that library school prepares (or, did prepare) you for the working world? What are library schools doing to connect students with jobs? What can be done better?
